Real-World Knowledge

In the spring of 2021, six students from a Dutch university asked researchers and the textile industry:

  • What data do you need?

  • How do you want to access it?

They received a lot of good and thought-provoking responses, and it became clear there is a whole lot more we can do increase industry knowledge and help future professionals learn about circular textiles.

We Learn Together

 

REvolve is launching 4 teams of students from Europe who want to learn about circular textiles in the real world and contribute to available knowledge for academia and the industry.
